I was wondering if anyone has done this, can recommend from experience how to do this, or can give advice on another way.
My question: Has anyone ever made a double sided raised panel interior door like this with regular cabinet bits?
I have made lots of raised panel cabinet doors. I have sets of Frued bits in various configurations. I’d like to make two of these 30” doors. Since the doors are thicker than a cabinet I thought I could make all components (rails, styles, panels) by using my cabinet bits first on one side then on the other side. I figure it would cut the groove for the rails and styles wide enough for the panels by cutting twice. Once for one side then the other. I’m trying to avoid finding and paying for bits to make doors as I suspect these may be the only two doors I ever make.
The door has rails/styles that are ogee on the inside edges (I’ve got cabinet bits that do this.
